Why Does Coconut Oil Change its forms?

I am an LPN Nurse and recuperating from being very sick, this is how I ate myself back to health. This article shows what else I found while taking a new look at nutrition.

As I have indicated in previous articles, my motivation for doing research into diet and nutrition was; I had gotten very sick, was hospitalized for a week and when released was still so weak I could barely walk.  I still didn’t know what was really wrong with me and what was worse the Doctor didn’t either. 

Holistic Medicine

In the hospital, my lovely and lifesaving neighbor brought me my requested reading material she added that she had talk to a friend of hers about something call Coconut Oil and Alzheimer’s disease.  It held out the promise using coconut oil could be used to help cure or at least stop Alzheimer’s and other illnesses.   

I was already very familiar with Holistic medicine and the work of Health Ranger, Dr. Mercola and numerous other homeopathic dedicated Doctor and nutritionist. I had been reading their material for several years. I had seen that article and others like it before and the information impressed me for I had a jar of coconut oil sitting in my pantry shelf.  I just didn’t know what to do with the stuff.  It was hard as a rock and looked funny so I just forgot about the whole thing and went on with living.

Well needless to say, that jar took on a new importance. When I got out of the hospital, I was given 13 different prescriptions  for everything from Hypertension, Hypothyroidism, Border line Diabetes, Heart Arrhythmia and a Fungal Infection and told to come back in two weeks. I began doing research into getting better, healthy diet, healthy life style and nutrition starting with coconut oil.  My first question was how do I eat this waxy white stuff and why is it so hard?
